To accompany the release, they have teamed up with the critically acclaimed Martin De Thurah to create a short, art house film, entitled 'Do It Again'. It is compelling not just for it’s personality, but also because it is simply not what you expect. We have been fortunate enough to land the exclusive stills and trailor from the film!
"This 5 track mini-album is the accumulation and embodiment of the synergy between Robyn and ourselves. We've intended this to be a diverse yet cohesive and thought through musical venture; it's meant to be an expression where pop & art reign side by side." — Röyksopp
Röyksopp and Robyn were inspired by each other’s company and compelled to create something they had never done before, building on the brief moments when they had come together in the past. Having worked together on ‘The Girl and the Robot’, which appeared on Röyksopp’s ‘Junior’ album in 2009 and ‘None Of Dem’ on Robyn’s ‘Body Talk’ Pt. 1 in 2010, the ‘Do It Again’ mini album sees the two artists doing just that.
“… this doesn't sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it's just something else entirely”, “The word 'collaboration' has never before been more justified in the world of music!” — Röyksopp
“Svein and Torbjörn and I started working on new music in the beginning of 2013, I´ve been going back and forth to Bergen to record and write with the boys up until recently. Collaborating with S & T is something I enjoy very much. In the beginning we just knew we wanted to do something together and then it started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we´re releasing this music together as a band you could say.” — Robyn
The film is directed by the acclaimed Martin De Thurah. Find out more about the film maker here.
